Probably one of the most poorly curated museums we've ever been to. Most definitely not worth a special trip. Have a look if in the area otherwise you can skip this one. Note: the adjoining restaurant is fantastic as is the museum store.

This is an unusual museum with interesting exhibits. Very manageable size and close to the other major museums. If you have an interest in modern art, it is worth stopping here.

Not so big nicely curated museum. It displays some expos now and again which are really cool. Never boring always entertaining. I love this museum!

Jawdropping. I learned & felt so much. Trevor Paglen's exhibit was phenomenal. Cheap tickets, lots to see, rooms a bit difficult to navigate.

Showing until the end of September 2018, the Trevor Paglen exhibit about AI and facial recognition/technology is pretty interesting and worth a visit. I also enjoyed seeing the portraits of Tamayo and his wife through the years as a reflection on aging.

Just not up to part with others in MEX. Not all that large really, and the pieces not amazing but any stretch. Restaurant a rip off.

We found this a superbly designed building, but the art displayed was disappointing. I visit Galleries wherever we travel and feel qualified to say this is not one I would recommend. The exhibition by Cerith Wyn Evans was very good. But the remainder was not...More

We spend probably less then 30 minutes here. We went mainly because it had started to rain after leaving the park and decided why not? To be fair to the museum we really don't get contemporary art which is the main reason why we didn't...More

We went to this museum expecting to see the works of Tamayo. After we bought our tickets we were told that the rooms containing the Tamayo paintings were closed for re-organization while the only exhibits there had nothing to do with Tamayo or even with...More

After entering such a gorgeous building, was disappointing with the rather small exhibition space, and disliked both of the rather dense exhibits on display. The Tamayo does, however, have a really lovely, if somewhat pricey, restaurant. Very professional service and English menus. Recommended if you...More

Mind we visited the museum almost 6 months ago. There were works by R. Tamayo, but they were not the main display.
